BOSTON - Three different Terriers found the back of the net but the No. 6 Boston University women's ice hockey team suffered a 6-3 setback against Northeastern on Tuesday night at Walter Brown Arena.

BU (6-3-1, 3-2-1 WHEA) and Northeastern (3-5-3, 2-3-0 WHEA) have now split the opening two games of the regular-season series, with the Terriers having earned a 3-2 win over the Huskies on Oct. 28. The teams will meet once more in league play on Jan. 18.

Juniors Sarah Lefort and Kayla Tutino tallied for the Terriers, as did freshman Victoria Bach. All three players also lit the lamp at Yale this past Saturday. Senior Shannon Doyle extended her point streak to seven games with the primary helper on Tutino's marker. Juniors Jordan Juron, Alexis Woloschuk and Dakota Woodworth joined sophomore Samantha Sutherland as skaters with an assist. Sophomore goaltender Victoria Hanson played in her first game since Oct. 24 and made 23 saves in her return from injury.

Northeastern opened the scoring 3:59 into the proceedings when Shelby Herrington won an offensive-zone faceoff back to Hayley Scamurra, whose ensuing shot beat Hanson. The Terriers responded less than 10 minutes later, however, when Lefort scored her team-leading seventh goal of the season. Woloschuk fired a shot from the point that Chloe Desjardins (29 saves) turned aside, but Lefort was in the right spot to knock home the rebound.

Kendall Coyne scored the first of her three goals at the 16:05 mark of the first frame when she capitalized on a breakaway chance. NU made it a 3-1 game when Coyne connected with McKenna Brand 1:46 into the second stanza. Coyne then extended the lead to 4-1 when she forced a turnover while killing a penalty and finished on the other end.

After NU took a 5-1 lead 4:27 into the third period, the Terriers tried to mount a comeback. They cut the lead to 5-2 at the 7:28 mark of the frame with Tutino's goal. Woodworth won a battle along the half-wall and got the puck to Doyle at the right point. The senior defenseman fired a shot that Tutino redirected past Desjardins for her second goal of the season.

Hanson had a terrific save on Coyne soon after Tutino's goal with Coyne nearly cashing in from in tight. That save proved vital because Bach brought BU within two at 5-3 with a power-play strike at the 12:14 juncture. Sutherland got the puck to Tutino, who sent a shot towards goal. It took a deflection and Bach got her stick to the disc and put it home for her fifth goal of the season.

The Terriers pulled Hanson in favor of an extra attacker late in regulation, but Coyne notched an empty-netter to secure the 6-3 final. The Terriers won 34 of the 55 faceoffs on Tuesday, with sophomore Maddie Elia going 16-for-23 at the dot to lead all skaters. BU also attempted 82 shots on goal, including 34 in the final 20 minutes as the Terriers tried to pull even.

BU will be back in action on Saturday when the Terriers begin a home-and-home series with Connecticut. Saturday's road tilt is set for 3 p.m., with Sunday's showdown at Walter Brown Arena also scheduled for 3 p.m.
